BRE is an American rock artist, songwriter, and producer based in Los Angeles.
Starting as a Country artist at 15 years old, BRE spent 13 years honing her craft, navigating through different genres and styles, before establishing herself firmly in alt-rock. Combining introspective lyrics, hard hitting instrumentation, and unique elements like classical guitar and upright bass, BRE’s music reflects her own personality - a blend of passion, badassery, and vulnerability.
BRE has played stages around the world, including most recently on American Idol Season 21. “Performing is what I do best,” BRE states, “It’s where I come alive, where I get the audience to join me in creating a show together that they will never forget.” From the stages of Barcelona to Los Angeles, BRE has wowed audiences of all sizes with her electrifying stage presence and high energy performances. “It’s not my show if there aren’t people singing and dancing along!” BRE states.
Establishing her live performance foundation as a dueling piano bar player, BRE’s live shows reflect her desire to make her audience part of the experience. A master at crowd work and audience interaction, BRE translates the multi faceted emotions of her songwriting to the stage through her powerhouse vocals, conversations with the audience, and emotion filled performances. Along side her brother Garrett Podgorski (electric and classical guitar), Tyler Honsel (electric and upright bass) and Daniel Possel (drums) who make up her band, BRE’s show is not one to be missed.
Her debut album ‘Playing With Power’, coming in 2024, takes the listener on a self reflective journey of what it’s like to overcome pain to grow into the person one wants to become. “I experienced a lot of mental health struggles growing up,” BRE states, “And I know I’m not alone in that. I hope this album can be a cathartic experience to listen to, where people feel understood in the struggle to become the person they want to be and hopeful about their future - while also jamming out to great songs!”
